Twins: Span (CF), Revere (RF), Mauer (DH), Willingham (LF), Morneau (1B), Doumit (C), Nishioka (2B), Dozier (SS), Carroll (3B)
Indians: Kipnis (2B), Cabrera (SS), Choo (RF), Santana (1B), Brantley (CF), Duncan (DH), Lopez (3B), Marson (CA), Carrera (LF)
With a sweep, the Twins could move into a tie for third place in the American League central. All success during this rebound process for the organization is relative, my friends, so make no mistake: moving into third place in the AL Central would constitute very good things. Let's see if this revamped pitching staff can lead the way.
|2012 - Zach McAllister||4-3||11||11||0||0||0||0||68.1||66||37||26||7||18||62||3.42||1.23|
Good strikeout rates, solid walk rates, and a 80mph curveball that's been remarkably effective. That sums up McAllister's season pretty well. The good news is that in his 86 MLB innings he's stranded just 60.5% of his base runners. If the Twins can get runners on and apply a little pressure, our small sample size says runs could come in bunches.
|2012 - Scott Diamond||9-5||16||16||1||1||0||0||107.1||111||41||35||9||15||59||2.93||1.17|
"Hi. I'm Scott Diamond, and I approve this message."
I don't know what that means. He's just been a lot of fun to watch.
